There are two reasons why people stay on a job: it’s either they love what they are doing or their work pays the bills. But it’s an entirely different story when people who work for for money alone become overcome with greed. In their quest for loads of money, these people tend to succumb to selfish emotions and live their lives on their own terms without any regard for how others may feel.
This particular story is a perfect example of such kind of greed.
There is one widow who received an uncanny and avaricious demand from her late husband. He was a man who worked so hard all his life for his money that he felt that he deserved to keep every cent of it to himself, even until death. And since this was his belief, he he expected his wife to grant him his dying wish. At her husband’s funeral, the widow figured out a way to maintain her integrity while granting her late husband’s dying wish.
Her idea is pure genius.
“There was a man who had worked all of his life and has saved all of his money.
He was a real cheapskate when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, ‘Now listen, when I die I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. Because I want to take all my money to the after life.’Photo credit: Pinterest
So he got his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died she would put all the money in the casket with him. When one day he died.”
“He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black next to their best friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, ‘Wait a minute!’
She had a shoe box with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket and rolled it away.”Photo credit: Profconsure
“Her friend said, ‘I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man.’
She said, ‘Yes, I promised. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I was to put that money in that casket with him.’
‘You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?’Photo credit: Logontocare.org.uk
‘I sure did,’ said the wife. ‘I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check.’ ”
Now, that’s a smart woman!
